Amitabh Bachchan calls angioplasty report 'fake news'

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan dismissed reports of ill health as "fake news", putting an end to rumours about his hospitalisation. Yesterday, Social media platforms were flooded earlier in the day with worried fans enquiring about Bachchan's health after several reports claimed the megastar had undergone an angioplasty procedure for either a clot in his leg or a blocked artery. But in the evening, Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek were photographed at the Dadoji Kondadev Stadium in Thane attending the final match of the Indian Street Premier League (ISPL) between Majhi Mumbai vs Tiigers of Kolkata, hours after reports of his hospital visit surfaced.

Amitabh Bachchan was seen at a Mumbai stadium on Friday night to witness the ISPL finale. In a video shared by a journalist, the actor can be seen smiling and greeting paps. When one of them enquire about his health, he signals that everything is good and then loudly says ‘fake news’.

On March 15, reports had been doing the rounds that Amitabh Bachchan had undergone angioplasty at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital. Looks like the veteran actor was pointing at that news.

However, there was no confirmation from either the hospital or his office for much of the day. And though the reports could not be independently verified, #Amitabh Bachchan and #Kokilaben Hospital were top trends on X. Among those who wrote were Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam. “Praying for Amitabh Bachchan's speedy recovery. #AmitabhBachchan,” he posted on X. Scores of others wrote wishing him to get well soon and that they were praying for his good health.
